This was indeed a special night out.
Our last night before heading back home...the siblings that were still in Mexico went into the town.
I felt it was necessary to give the definition of special..because it was special in that we don't normally get to go out together, let alone while in Mexico...but also because the males that joined Alyssa and I were in rare form.
Nevertheless, we had a really fun time. A big priority was finding the scarf store..and prior to finding "the one", we had running commentary on how we were passing ALL KINDS OF SCARF STORES and then we found one that sold many that we decided to stop at. 
Not only were the scarves a good price, but they had a sign on the store that said "fixed prices." Clearly that was just a mistake, according to one of the boys that had joined us..oh my goodness!
The poor ladies at this shop were probably SO ready for us to leave..he had talked and TALKED and TALKED...of course attempting in spanish using Ben to translate the words he wanted to say. We bought what we went for..apologizing for all the ridiculousness :)
We ended up finding "the store" we were trying to find..
so many wonderful things!
Then we walked around just looking at the variety of stores and people. It seemed crazy that there were so many people out and about, shopping and carrying on at 11 pm.
Here are a few pictures from the evening...brace yourself :)

see how we're normal...

and what we dealt with was not...

They are special alright...
real special.
